on H1N What?
I am pregnant, due late December, and after reading lots and talking to medical doctors and naturopaths lots the last three weeks, I remain uncertain about whether to get the swine flu shot. I know that mercury-free versions will be available, which is great, but one thing I still find a little scary: The flu shots are recommended for pregnant moms, BUT the vaccine product inserts make it clear that the regular flu vaccines have never been tested on pregnant or nursing women to determine if there is any harm to fetuses or young babies. Despite this complete lack of research, it is recommended for pregnant women anyway. Anyone see a problem with that?? (p.s. Sorry for the boldface. For some reason I can't get it to go away!)
